KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A law passed this year that increases registration fees for hybrid and electric vehicles will go into effect next month.

Starting in January, drivers of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles will see registration fees increase to $50 from the current $30-$40. Drivers of all-electric vehicles will see their fees increase to $100 from the current $30-$40.

The Kansas Department of Revenue says the increase in registration fees will generate an additional $610,095 in revenue.
